Russell Malone Quartet

March 16, 2019         8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

The New York Times has called Malone "a guitarist of taste and tradition." As a young man, Malone toured with several artists fitting that mold including Nat King Cole's brother, Freddie Cole, Harry Connick Jr. and Diana Krall. But Malone is a guitarist's guitarist who has elevated the creativity of the bebop line to a sublime art-form. In response to listening to Malone during a Downbeat Blindfold Test, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel responded by noting "Obviously, we are in the capable hands of a master. Absolutely fluid touch and beautiful integration between moving lines and harmonic cadences... to play this stuff is extremely hard. This is an absolute master, the best of the best." Malone developed his sound to match the soul-drenched guitar sound common to his home state of Georgia before moving to New York where he honed his own, completely personal style. Malone is now one of the leading guitarists on the scene today, a mature and revered master. Perhaps he is best known more for his recorded work accompanying other jazz greats like Kenny Barron, Ron Carter or Jimmy Smith, but Malone has fourteen albums out as a leader of his own collaborations.  www.vtjazz.org

Pedrito Martinez and Alfredo Rodriguez Duo

May 18, 2019             8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

Two of Cuba's greatest young musical masters will come together in an incendiary duo performance. Pedrito Martínez (b. 1973) is the winner of the Thelonious Monk competition in percussion and Alfredo Rodriguez (b. 1985) has quickly emerged as one of the finest Cuban jazz pianists after being "discovered" by legendary producer Quincy Jones. Martínez' fame spread initially due to his work with the folkloric ensemble, Los Muñequitos de Matanzas, which led to work with Jane Bunnett's Spirit of Havana in 1998. Since then he has become one of the most highly regarded Afro-Cuban percussionists in the world. Pianist Rodriguez attended three music conservatories in Cuba, winning classical piano competitions in each. After performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2016, he was invited by Quincy Jones to collaborate on a project that was presented at the Shanghai World Expo. These two Grammy-nominated artists first worked together on Rodriquez' 2012 release Invasion Parade. Since that initial session they have had the rare arrangement of performing together as a duo, leaving audiences completely mesmerized by their fearless and virtuosic playing.  www.vtjazz.org

Sheila Jordan with Cameron Brown, Eugene Uman and Friends

June 1, 2019           8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

This concert celebrates NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan in her 90th year. It serves as an expression of gratitude to Jordan for her loving and generous 20-plus year involvement in our community as a mentor and performer. VJC director, Eugene Uman usually performs on this date with his Convergence Project. This concert is a golden opportunity to join forces with one of the vocal legends of our time in its stead. We will also welcome Jordan's muse, bassist Cameron Brown, and other friends (TBA) to enhance the festivities.

In her autobiography "Jazz Child, a Portrait of Sheila Jordan," Jordan tells of how the legendary saxophonist Charlie Parker "gave me courage by telling me I was unique in my sound and that I had million-dollar ears." Her 1963 debut on Blue Note Records, Portrait of Sheila, is considered a jazz classic. Since then she has recorded over 22 albums as a leader and appeared as a guest soloist on hundreds of others. Along with the NEA Jazz Master Award, Jordan has received an IAJE Humanitarian Award, a Mary Lou Williams' Women in Jazz Lifetime of Service Award and many others. Sheila has taught thousands of students around the world, helping them to realize their potential, and encourages us all to savor and delight in the immensity and swinging depth of jazz music.  www.vtjazz.org

The plaza will be located near the base area of Carinthia which is easily accessible to spectators, so come up and check out the C.O.M.P. and years from now you'll be telling your friends you saw it first.  www.mtsnow.com
